Bridleless riding anyone??
Anyone here do bridleless/tackless riding? Post and share your pics of you and your equine counterparts! :D
No pics though that I can find.. we were all about that last night though :)
Cute pic, your horse is luvin life right there.
Beautiful pic, you and your horse both look very happy :D
I use Clicker Training for my horses and I try to teach most things without tack before I add tack. While my first few rides I had halter/reins just in case - I've been doing a lot of tackless riding with my mare. My only rule for riding tackless is a helmet is a must.
This is my mare learning about tarps :)
Thank you :) It is quite fun and a liberating feeling to have that close communication with your horse. We have been progressively working on our bridleless for a couple years and he is doing great with it :)
I've never tried bridleless riding, but these pics are convincing me to try! xD
I use CT and make up my own cues xD I touch either side of her neck to 'neck rein' her using my seat to slow down and my legs to move her hind end or speed up or move directly over. The cues are similar to most riders - except mine don't escalate if the horse doesn't respond. And the horse is rewarded for the correct responses :)
I love bridleless! It is so refreshing to just have fun with my horses!http://www.crktrainingblog.com/wp-co...-jkJFMGf-M.jpg
Yes! We learnt to ride bridless last weekend. Today we will try canter bridless for the first time.

I'm working on our crew. The dark bay I'm riding is my daughter's little horse and this was my first time to take the bridle off of him. He did very well. The chestnut has been my project for about 3 1/2 years now. He was started very badly as a young horse and when I got him at 8-9 years old, he knew absolutely nothing even on the ground, and he was scared to death of the saddle. He bucked as soon as anyone came near him with a saddle and he was super touchy and skittish. We've come a long way and I got him used to tack, cues, getting bumped, poked, pushed, etc. He rides very well. Now I'm slowlly taking the tack back off. We're not actually riding bridleless yet, but he has no problem letting me jump on him and lean back, pulling on his mane, bump into his side if I don't quite make it up the first time, etc. whether he's eating or just standing there. So we're getting there. Just yesterday I rode him bareback and in nothing but a rope halter so our bridelless time is coming. :D
Nice to see there are a number of other 'crazies' here!:-P Only thing with pics is, I usually ride alone(changing w more local horsey friends!:D) so don't have much to show!
I do have at least a string around the horse's neck when outside a safe area & if out in public, while I don't usually use the reins much these days, I wouldn't go without a halter all together, unless I was really confident & safe in the environment, because I reckon it's safer to work within the premise that 'anything can happen, but only generally will if you rely on it not to':lol:
